Early Access Registration Begins 08/20/2013

The pre-order codes that are being distributed for North America and Europe include instructions that they will be redeemed via a special website:
NA: http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com
EU: http://preorder.eu.finalfantasyxiv.com

This special site is not yet live for users to redeem the codes received from their retailer.
Once the code redemption for this site is live, scheduled for August 20, 2013, you will be able to enter the code you received that looks like: ABCDEF-###-ABCDEF-###

That will then give you all the instructions required to register your early access code.

In short, hang tight guys and don’t panic!

Hey everyone,

Early access will not end before the official launch begins, so don't worry!
For those asking about waiting for their physical packages to arrive with their full reg. code -- early access users will be able to play until August 30th.

As we announced previously, video and audio taken during early access may not be posted or streamed.

Users are able to record video during early access (and previously, Beta 4) but may not post the video until launch.

Greetings,

Version 1.0 account holders that have redeemed a PS3 pre-order code for early access on their account are now eligible to play on the PC version as well!

Not to step on Kalila's toes, but I wanted to make an announcement just once. So, here you go.

Im a 1.0 non legacy player. I was wondering what exactly I need to do when ARR launches on the 27th. I still have 1.0 installed do I just log in and it will update itself? Or will I need to get a new digital copy perhaps? Any info will help, thanks.

They'll be sending out emails with instructions, just make sure your SE accnt email is up to date. You can probably go ahead and unistall 1.0 since it's completely useless and DL the new launcher/client to get ready: http://gdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/inst/ffxivsetup.exe you won't be able to log in but at least you'll have a jump on the .dat files.

You will get your 1.0 CE items via Mog Mail, but only receive Cait Sith minion and Mog Hat unless you upgrade.

This is incorrect, info below.

On the plus side, if you own a copy of Final Fantasy XIV, you can download Final Fantasy XIV: ARR for free, it seems.

After Sept. 9th, you will begin your usual 30 free days. Unless I read that wrong. It could be if you've registered a new copy.
Yes, I read it wrong. I'm slipping..
